    My approach would be slightly different then Bill Polian. For me, I would identify the key needs that a team has and based off of that go BPA. For example, the Rams needs include:

    DT

    OLB

    WR

    DE

    DB

    In our 2011 TTalk Mock Draft, I used my strategy and went BPA according to who was available which resulted in me picking Stephen Paea, Greg Jones, Edmond Gates, Ricky Elmore, and Eric Hagg.

    From the ESPN article linked above:

    I think the Texans draft strategy (they have a strategy?) is a combination of finding guys who "fit" the team in scheme and culture, along with filling needs. Like, "we need a corner, and he needs be able to press, and he needs to be an eagle scout."

    Yep, that team would be the AFC south doormat if it weren't for him, for sure.

    And when this doesn't work just pick the first TE you see on the list of draft eligible players.
